Tech Activities Board (TAB)Mission and Values

Our Mission

  • The Tech Activities Board (TAB) is a group of students dedicated to providing educational and social activities, as well as diverse events and programs to enhance the overall Texas Tech University experience.

Our History

  • The Tech Activities Board (TAB) is the largest student programming organization on the Texas Tech University campus and is responsible for planning quality events for the university community. TAB was founded in the early 1950’s as the University Center Programming Board and reinvented in 2006, as TAB, to better serve and identify with the student population. Today, TAB plays a vital role in fostering and developing Red Raider spirit and traditions such as Homecoming, RaiderGate, Arbor Day, and Rock the Plaza and in creating community on the Texas Tech University campus.

Our Values

  • the image of TAB and producing quality events
  • the talents and gifts of our committee members
  • the ability to develop leaders and enhance individual skills
  • the diversity and ideas of all members of the campus community

tech activities board tab gender
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Gender

What is your gender?

In the 2008-2009 school year, 950 participants were surveyed at the completion of a TAB event they attend, 355 were male and 571 were female. This equates to a little less than 40% male and roughly 60% female. This past semester, the Tech Activities Board drew in a larger female population than a male population. Last year, the Tech Activities Board reported that approximately 51% of their attendees were female and 45% were male. Approximately 4% of students surveyed last year did not respond to the question.

tech activities board tab ethnicity
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Ethnicity

What is your ethnicity?

The TAB evaluation specifically asks what race participants are to determine if we are appealing to our underrepresented populations. Approximately 13% of the students that attended our events were Hispanic/Latino, 7% were Asian-American and 7% of the surveyed attendees identified as African-American. Last year, about 15% of individuals in attendance at our events were Hispanic, while our African-American and Asian-American populations were 4% and 5% respectively.

tech activities board tab ethnicity1
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Ethnicity

The data for diversity statistics for Tech students in the year 2008 came from the online Texas Tech University Fact Book. Converting these numbers into percentages and comparing them to our own statistics and percentages yielded positive results. The statistical comparisons in percentages show how close TAB and Tech are in their attractiveness to underrepresented populations through programming. Proportionately, TAB attracts a larger percentage of underrepresented populations at their events than Texas Tech has as part of their overall population. Last year, the Tech Activities Board also attracted a higher percentage of underrepresented students than the university population reflected.

tech activities board tab classification
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Classification

What is your classification?

The Tech Activities Board was pleased to see a wide arrays of individuals attend their events this year. Between the results from last year and this year, there were decrease in the percentage of individuals that were Freshmen (-3%), Juniors (-1%), and Seniors (-6%), there was a 4% increase in sophomores in attendance, as well as slight increases in sophomores (4%), Graduate students (4%), Staff (1%), and members of the Lubbock community (2%).

Undergraduates only

tech activities board tab alternative
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Alternative

Did you attend this program as an alternative to doing something else?

There was no significant change between last year’s results and this year’s results when individuals that attended TAB events were surveyed. Both years yielded results that indicated that 36% claimed that they had attended a TAB event as an alternative to doing something else.

tech activities board tab education
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Education

Did you learn something new from this program?

This year yielded a significantly lower percentage of responses that indicate that individuals learned something new by attending a TAB event. Last year, approximately 55% of the participants surveyed indicated that they learned something new, while 43% of the participants this year made that claim.

tech activities board tab class credit
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Class Credit

Are you receiving credit for a class?

The Tech Activities Board often writes letters to departments and instructors of courses that they think could use an event or program as an opportunity to education their students. This year, 5% of the student population claimed that they received class credit for the events that they attended. Last year, 7% of those surveyed reported that they received class credit.

tech activities board tab community
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Community

Did you come to this event with someone?

We can see that a majority of participants attended our events with someone. This is to be expected of the college social scene. The results reported last year and this year both reveal that over three quarters of individuals who attended the events came with another person. Last year, 88% reported that they attended with another person and this year 86% made that claim.

tech activities board tab community1
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Community

Did the program provide you with a sense of community?

One of the goals of the Tech Activities Board is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for the student of Texas Tech University. Over three quarters of the students and staff that participated in the event evaluation process felt as though the Tech Activities Board accomplished this goal.

tech activities board tab student organization link
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Student Organization Link

Did you come as part of a student organization function?

The Tech Activities Board makes efforts to create events that student organizations and departments on campus value and have a vested interest in. Many of these relationships often involve co-sponsoring events with organizations, but many student organizations attend the events as a group. Last year, 10% of individuals surveyed reported that they attended the event and part of a student organization function. This year, 9% of those surveyed reported this.

tech activities board tab marketing
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Marketing

How did you find out about this event?

Last year, word-of-mouth was by far our best publicity for events, but this year TechAnnounce seems to have been the most effective form of publicity, followed by word of mouth, posters, the TAB Calendar, and Facebook.Last year, the use of Facebookdid not yield very high results, but it has increased dramatically. Also, individuals who reported “other” has shown a dramatic increase in the past year. This may be related to expectation that the Tech Activities Board utilized unconventional forms of marketing to promote their events.

tech activities board tab publicity
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Publicity


Last year, 29% of the individuals surveyed indicated that the marketing for TAB events was excellent. This year that number has improved to 37%. Another interesting note is that less than 10% of those surveyed indicated that they thought the marketing was below average. Last year, 11% of the sample reported that the publicity was below average or poor.

tech activities board tab venue
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Venue


The venues, although varied, seemed to greatly please the majority of students. Places that were generally utilized to hold events, included the Allen Theater, Matador Room, and SUB West Basement. While most of our events take place in the Student Union, TAB considers itself the programming board for the entire campus and will look to utilize other venues throughout campus. Last year, 50% of the sample indicated that the venue was excellent and this year the number has grown to 59%. It is good to know that 1% of the sample indicated that the venue used was below average or poor.

tech activities board tab time
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Time


Time varies greatly for TAB events. We offer several smaller events during the daytime, many of our larger events after six, and our movie times are inconsistent in order to appeal to as many students as possible. Overall, it would seem that our wide array of times pleases the students. Last year, 49% of the sample indicated that the time selected for the event was excellent and this year the number has grown to 57%. It is good to know that 1% of the sample indicated that the venue used was below average or poor.

tech activities board tab date
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Date


TAB takes into consideration midterms, finals, home athletic games and tries to offer our events at times when students have no other commitments. Last year, 50% of the sample indicated that the date selected for the event was excellent and this year the number has grown to 57%. It is good to know that 1% of the sample indicated that the venue used was below average or poor. Of course, the people surveyed were able to attend the event so they more than likely were pleased with the day of the event.

tech activities board tab quality
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Quality


TAB strives to maintain a high quality of events for students. Last year, 57% of the sample indicated that the time selected for the event was excellent and this year the number has grown to 63%. It is good to know that 1% of the sample indicated that the venue used was below average or poor.

tech activities board tab overall satisfaction
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Overall Satisfaction


This is potentially the most important statistic of the entire evaluation. Many things may make a student disgruntled: venue, date of event, subject matter; however it is the overall feeling after the event that is most important. We want students to leave with a smile on their face thinking, “That was awesome! I love being a Tech student and I love TAB.” Last year, 57% of the sample indicated that the time selected for the event was excellent and this year the number has grown to 62%. It is good to know that 1% of the sample indicated that the venue used was below average or poor.

tech activities board tab future programming
Tech Activities Board (TAB)Future Programming

What events would you like to see in the future?

The most requested events were concerts, followed closely by and comedians. In general, these would be the most entertaining events and as such seemed to be the most popular. Acoustic Music and Hypnotists were the next two highest scoring categories. Last year, the most requested type of event was comedian followed by concerts and movies.

tech activities board paying your tab rewards program
Tech Activities Board“Paying Your TAB” Rewards Program

“Paying your TAB” is a rewards program for students that frequent Tech Activities Board events. Students complete a registration form and are then given a “Paying your TAB” punch card. For every event a student attends in the fall or spring, they receive a punch. Once the student has attended ten (10) events and receives ten (10) punches, they can then turn their card in to be entered in to win prizes. Participation in the “Paying your TAB” program gives the student the opportunity to be on a bi-monthly email newsletter that informs students about upcoming TAB events.

In the 2008-2009 school year, 892 students participated in the Paying Your Tab Rewards program.

Getting Involved

As a part of the Texas Tech University community, students have the opportunity to join registered student organizations including service, academic, professional, and religious groups to name a few.

Student organizations impact who students meet at college, the skills they learn, the confidence they build, and the leadership positions they take on. Most successful students join student organizations in their freshman year where they make friends and start to develop support networks. Many organizations provide students with the opportunity to meet and interact with people in the professional career areas they intend to pursue, as well as make life long friends. Being in a student group is a critical part of the college experience and helps determine success in higher education.

Involvement Is Easy

Joining a student organization is the greatest way to get involved on campus and also one of the easiest. There are approximately 400 organizations currently registered at Texas Tech University with over 20,000 members participating in these groups – this is a quick way to get connected on campus. Since there are thirteen categories of student organizations linked to every aspect of campus life, it is very difficult not to be involved.
